Spera writes for The Conversation

2019 Second Century Stewardship Fellow Stephanie Spera wrote an article about her fall foliage research for The Conversation, an independent nonprofit journalism outlet that works with leading scholars across academia to share their knowledge with the public.

Spera also spoke with scientist and science journalist Heather Goldstone, host of Living Lab Radio.

SCS communications training includes understanding the science media universe, interacting with reporters and editors from local and national magazines and newspapers to learn how to frame research for news audiences. Fellows have written their own articles like Spera’s, and developed relationships with reporters for ongoing coverage of their work. Others have written press releases and are regular blog authors.
